Your highest self shall shine at the moment you welcome the darkest part of you. When you invite the lowest of you to enter your awareness, you let your light shine without judgement on those parts of your soul that have felt rejected and cast out. This is the part of you that has become angry, sad, bitter and lonely due to painful experiences. Please have compassion for this part of you that lives in the darkness and seeks solutions from the darkness, which often take you even farther away from the light.
In the darkness, you develop survival mechanisms which keep you from feeling what is really going on inside you: the fear, despair, depression and loneliness. You turn away from them. In fact, you are often taught to do so by the world around you. ‘Turn away from negative emotions. Be positive. Do your best. Be useful.’ These kinds of warnings and invocations create fear inside you about your own darkness and they alienate you from your deepest feelings.
You all have a deep desire for light, for the freedom inherent in surrendering to who you truly are. Please realise that you ignite the greatest light inside if you are willing to reach out to the darkest and most neglected parts of you.
I invite you to do so now, at this very moment. Please take a look and see whether there is a negative emotion or thought inside you that shows up constantly and needs your attention. First realise that this dark emotion or thought is part of being human. Imagine that this dark area inside you is a child that has been neglected. You might find him/her hiding in a corner. Is it a boy or a girl?
Take a look and see whether you can find him or her, whether you can make contact with the child. Start with eye contact and then stretch out your hand carefully. Look at the child tenderly and see how hard he or she has tried to survive. This child is filled with joy and passion for life. However, he or she had to endure so much that the power of joy and passion has been distorted. The original energy of the child has become trapped in all kinds of masks and survival mechanisms, due to which their life force began to work against itself. But now, the child is allowed to be who he/she truly is. Please stretch out your hand and let your light shine. Welcome the child with your eyes.
Let the child come to you, in his/her own pace. Wait patiently, hold him/her in your arms and press him/her against your heart. What the child needs to relax and recover is to be seen and soothed by you. Observe how you shine with warmth, love and understanding when you are in contact with this helpless and agonised child. Inviting your darkest part in, welcoming it and bringing it home brings out the lightest part of you. You understand how this child feels. This understanding heals. The child in the dark represents the part of you that has been carrying a lot of pain without being able to understand why. By surrounding this pain with understanding and compassion, you shine your light on areas that used to be the source of negative emotions and thoughts. At the moment you embrace the agonised child inside you, you become a human angel. You bring light into the darkness, which is exactly what humanity needs right now.
Humanity doesn’t need saints and gurus who teach from a pulpit or pedestal, but real flesh and blood people who have experienced darkness and light by themselves and are able to embrace both without judgement. You become a human angel at the moment you dare to face and accept your own darkness. This will make your light pure and powerful. Life shall support you. You will be drawn to opportunities and places where you can reveal your highest self in an easy and natural way. You don’t have to work for it. You don’t have to pretend to be somebody else, since it is your own unique vibration and energy that inspires people and brings joy to them. It is you! You represent the love of God in your unique way, because you are willing and able to face and embrace your own darkness with understanding. People experience openness, tenderness and inspiration in your presence, in the way you listen to them. Whatever you do in expressing and manifesting your highest self on earth, it will invite people to shine by themselves and believe in their own unique power and talents. To give the highest of you encourages other people to do the same.
